Start with ?INSTALL, and find more details in the Writing R Extensions 
manual.  I believe RStudio can be configured to use those tools rather 
than the devtools ones, but I don't know if it will still run its test 
for Rtools if you do it that way.

I imagine you can also update RStudio and all of your packages; 
eventually that will work, if this is really the issue.
